Zhanna Nemtsova asks to put pressure on investigation into her father's murder
This summer, the OSCE will prepare a report on the politician's assassination.
The Russian authorities are not interested in investigating the murder of opposition politician and former Deputy Prime Minister Boris Nemtsov. This was stated by his daughter Zhanna to journalists of Voice of America.
According to her, it is necessary to put pressure on the investigators from the international community, since the case is deliberately hushed up.
Nemtsov’s daughter recalled that in the summer of this year, an OSCE report on the killing of the politician would be held, which would allow “to keep in focus” a loud criminal case. In addition, Russia will have to respond to those requests that the rapporteur sent to the officials.
Recall that Boris Nemtsov was shot on February 27, 2015 on the Bolshoy Moskvoretsky Bridge in the center of the capital. The investigation of the case was initially handled by Igor Krasnov, who later became the deputy chairman of the ICR, and Tutevich stood at the head of the investigation team. Five people became involved in the case: Zaur Dadayev, brothers Anzor and Shadid Gubashevs, Temirlan Eskerkhanov and Khamzat Bakhaev – they received terms from 11 to 20 years in prison.
According to investigators, the murder was ordered, and for its execution, Dadayev was promised to be paid 15 million rubles ($230,000). Investigators believe that the organizer of the assassination was the driver of Commander Dadayev in the Sever battalion, Ruslan Mukhudinov. According to the lawyers of the Nemtsov family, ex-Commander of the Sever Ruslan Geremeev was also involved in the murder of the oppositionist.
It concerns entrepreneur Dmitry Motorin, Boris Usherovich, a co-owner of the Group of Companies 1520, and Novoe Vremya board member, Ivan Stankevich. Motorin is accused of giving a bribe on an especially large scale, and Stankevich and Usherovich are charged with bribe-taking.
This week, the judicial debates in the trial of Vladimir Barsukov-Kumarin charged with creation of Tambovskie organized criminal group have been finished in the Kuibyshevsky District Court of St. Petersburg. If the court upholds the stance of the state prosecution, the once-influential criminal ‘authority’ may be convicted to almost 25 years behind bars. In reality, this translates into a life term for the legend of criminal St. Petersburg.
